year to try to convince voters to approve a tax hike to deal with california's bumming. well, he successfully succeeded in doing that. so now his clout couldn't be lier and today we expect him to outline his vision on other issues beyond what last year was which was all about taxes and that's going to include as you said education, a big one. he is going to reveal a plan we expect that will offer more money and resources to poorer schools or those student who are more in need than others and also to address public universities to try to compel them to cut costs to students as well as making courses more prevalent online. infrastructure is another big one as he is expected to push for high speed rail and to talk act water issues and trying to build two massive tunnels to move water from northern california to southern california. part of today's state of the state address will be very positive in tone. the governor expected to point out that california is leading the nation in job growth and that the state's credit rating has improved dramaticly over the past several years. last b

taxes passed. the budget looks a lot better. i think this was the governor's chance to pivot, to pivot to talking about what makes california great, how we get them back on track. don't worry, we're getting there. so i took this as a real optimistic speech with a lot of details, a lot of brown history facts. and really a message i think not only to the legislature but to the public of, like, i'm watching it. we're going to be careful, but we're going to move forward. >> and, john, you mentioned he was very quirky in his speech. clearly the governor is enjoying his popularity right now and quoted everyone from philosophers and poets. let's take a listen. >> i'm sorry, say again? >> the most diverse, creative and longest standing mass migration in the history of the world. that's california, and we are sons and daughters. this special destiny never ends. it slows. it falters. it goes off the track. and ignorance and prejudice but soon resumes again. more vibrant and more stunning in its boldness. >> so, john, how has the speech been received by lawmakers, both democrats and republicans?
